Mothers Day weekend and lots of outfits

What a beautiful weekend. I have really enjoyed the sunshine. On Saturday afternoon, we went for an early dinner at the local pub. I tried out a few different outfits. After my last post on my clothes obsessions, I decided to try some outfits with some of my many jackets.

cropped leggings - New Look

In the end I decided to go for the first and safest option on the basis that Mr Style Eyes would probably refuse to step foot in the local pub with me in the others. I have a few occasions in mind when I could wear the others though

Sunday was Mothers Day. I was lucky enough to wake up (or should I say was woken up at 5.30am) to champagne, flowers, choccies, 5 cards (pretty good considering I only have 2 children) and lots of cuddles. After a whole hour and a half to myself, spent looking through my wardrobe and trying on clothes, I took the children to the park, where we had our first picnic of the year. Admittedly it was slightly chilly but the sun was out so who cares.

yummy mummy styleMy Mothers Day outfit choice, needed to be yummy mummy, but not mumsy! Also practical for trying out the zip wire at the park. Not sure if I actually achieved this, but I swapped the wedge boots for flats before going to the park. I bleached these jeans last year and I still love them. I though I would try a look I have seen (not sure where) black and white trousers combined with camel/ neutral top

When I got back we had champagne and then a Chinese take away. duck pancakes with plum sauce, cucumber and spring onion is officially my new favourite food. I was going to take some delicious looking pictures but unfortunately, the temptation was to great and I ate them first.

On a final note, I have just realised how outrageously out of date my blogroll is. I will be updating it is the next week and removing any links to sites that do not have regularly updated and interesting posts. If you would like to be added please leave a comment.
